The greatest collision of the ages is upon us. Day after day, I have written the burden the Lord has placed upon me. I admit it. These blogs are designed to fervently rebuke the unrighteous religious leader. On the other hand, this blog is a fervent encouragement to the righteous core who have held to their integrity.
But do you really want to know why God had me write to you day after day? It’s because—despite all the darkness, perversion, division and violence—regardless of how low society has fallen—I believe—with atom of my being—an amazing act of God is on the horizon.
We are not just going to see a great falling away…but a great harvest. A harvest beyond anything we can imagine. It will begin in shocking location in a shocking way. It will baffle believers as much as it does sinners.
Therefore I have been forced to write messages that target shallowness, compromise, hypocrisy, and gross negligence. Gross negligence—because it wasn’t just what they did—it was when they did it. As Satan unleashed his most destructive assault on the church, and the nation, they puddled around in false success leaving their post unguarded. I know that’s a serious accusation…but I stand by it.
Driven by lust for growth, they wantonly closed their ears to the political disaster that dismantled faith and morality in America. They should have been putting the Word of God in people. They don’t awaken a hunger for revival. They create evil appetites. They weaken and distract the church from true revival. They should hang their heads in shame for speeding up our demise.
To me, they are as guilty as those who voted to destroy marriage—they are as guilty as those who voted to force our taxes to fund abortions—they are as guilty as the architects of the God-hating mobs that roam our streets, teach in our universities, and people our institutions.
If they asked me how I could accuse them of such horrible crimes, I would simply ask them how could you waste critical time building a man-made entertainment center when you could have contended for a moral awakening?
Am I harsh? Perhaps, but I am not alone. Charles Finney said, “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.”
On the other hand, this blog calls out a special remnant who are restless. They don’t fit anywhere. They don’t even understand why they have held to their integrity.
What is coming soon will be simultaneously glorious and humiliating. Glorious to a company of people who, at this moment, labor in obscurity. Suddenly they will be raised up. At the same time many who are celebrity preachers who will suffer a great demotion.
The greatest harvest in the history of Christianity will be placed in the hands of special ones—faithful ones. Already they are being chosen. Already they have an appointment with destiny that will bring them into an unimaginable nearness to Jesus.
Those who are called to this will ask and receive things that prior generations could not imagine. We are talking about awesome things!
They may not know who they are. They don’t have an inkling of what is about to overtake them.
The Lord is testing them in obscurity. It’s the only way that yields a vessel who can be trusted with great power. They have been rejected for refusing to conform to the counterfeits. God made them misfits. Because He knew what was coming.
God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship, that would produce special powers for His Children.
Jesus saw the future and uttered an explosive prayer: PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND WORKERS INTO THE HARVEST. Notice He did not say ministers, or celebrities. He said workers. Many want the titles, attention, and rewards…but they don’t want to do the work. A special core burns white hot with passion win lost souls and heal the sick. They are hidden now but soon they will shine like the sun.
But there is another miracle awaiting this unique breed. They will be allowed to see the world around them from the vantage point of the throne of God. Ephesians 2: 6 says “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”
What do you see from this vantage point? You see that all the vile railings of our culture are not—in any way—a threat to the purposes of the almighty. He knows the hollow arguments of the haters. He is not moved by the mental monopoly of fake news and leftist social media. He saw it all coming and prepared the response.
And that response has already begun in our crusades. Altar calls that render the audience helpless before the power of God. I have not seen this since the Jesus Movement!
The Lord of the universe is not poor. He has pooled untold wealth to transfer it into the hands of trusted, proven, purified vessels whose only passion is to obey.
Finally, learn the truth of the slingshot. It may explain everything you are going through right now.
They are being hurt, wounded and brought to the brink of despair before their breakthrough. In their pain and agony, they will cry out why—why am I being pulled away from my promise? Why does each day take me further and further away from what You promised me?
Like a slingshot, God is deliberately building up the tension—the frustration—the fire to act…and at just the right moment, He will release you. There is a great falling away coming and it will result in new voices and new anointing leading to the greatest harvest of souls in history.
BREAKING NEWS: THE POWER OF GOD IS STARTING TO RADIATE ON THE STREETS OF RENO. THE TENT GOES UP ON SEPTEMBER 19TH AT 700 SUTRO STREET IN RENO. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO LIVES NEAR RENO THAT A MIGHTY OUTPOURING IS COMING AND TO JOIN US IN THE TENT FROM SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD TO THE 28TH.
Most preaching today suggests there is little we can do about demonic activity. But the Bible says “…the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God -2 Corinthians 10:4,5
If we can’t tear down strongholds, God is guilty of child abuse on a grand scale. So, can we stop the demons that are strangling America? Not only can we—it’s our duty.
Furthermore, if we can’t destroy demon strongholds, Paul is guilty of awakening a false hope. The whole point of 2 Corinthians 10: 4 and 5 was to provoke the church to take up the mighty weapons of God.
How honest can I be with you? Satan has done a work that is nothing short of a masterpiece of deception. He has veered the church away from any practical study of warfare, authority and the anointing.
His weapons of choice are two extremes. In fact, they are prevailing schools of thought—schools of thought that can only stay in business by severely playing down our authority over demons. They are the therapeutic church, and the gloom and doom church.
The therapeutic church: How better to take the army of God off the field than to plunge them into open-ended recovery? The therapeutic church must focus on happy talk and self-fulfillment. Shaking up their comfort zones with talk of warfare threatens attendance. To survive, they must fixate impressionable believers on lesser goals and lower living.
Therapeutic Pastors love to say things like… “it’s all in God’s hands.” While that is a comforting truth it is not the one we need right now. That makes Christians passive. And, everywhere you look in the Bible it is opposes passivity and advocates action: “fight the good fight of faith…” “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” “Resist the devil…” “Take the sword of the Spirit” …Etc.
The Gloom and Doom Church: Fascination with how the world will end detracts from our duty to resist the devil. Dates, signs, and conspiracy theories titillate but they do not equip for war. Key ground is lost while they stare at the skies looking for the next clue.
Again, how honest can I be? Fear sells books, conspiracy theories sells food for survival not revival. Gloom and doom prophets—like good democrats—must cheer on global domination, global warming and global disasters to keep Christians buying. They do not equip you to confront and conquer evil because they don’t want to believe it’s possible.
Mario what can I do? If you are ready here are the changes we need to make and the steps, we need to take. It’s time to do things radically different.
1. Begin by revolutionizing the way you pray: Pray different than you do now. Stand between heaven and earth as a true intercessor. Invoke the Name above all Names to get to the very Throne of God with your petition. Do it the way Moses raised the rod of Aaron over the battle. When you pray, pray violently, pray exactingly, detailing the damage you want done and where you want it done. By the Spirit, speak directly to evil powers. Call them out and cast them down.
God has chosen to act in answer to prayer. He waits until His people rise and take their rightful place in the arena of prayer to command His works on the earth.
2. Talk about God different than you do now. Why should you apologize? What you have works. What they have doesn’t work. Arm yourself with your testimony and the blood of the Lamb. Challenge the double standard. Why is Jesus the only thing this supposedly open-minded generation won’t talk about?
3. Plan gatherings with great expectation: Plan events that the Holy Spirit can use to bring revival. Azusa Street was a small effort that exploded into unimaginable proportions. How dare anyone think that your small meeting can’t be used in a massive way? What is wrong with expecting the sick to be healed and the captive to be set free? Away with powerless and harmless get-togethers!
4. Let holy anger rise when in you until you will die unless God uses you: Young David saw the stalemate. No one challenged Goliath. David couldn’t stand it. He offered himself to God. God is looking for someone like that today—someone who can’t live with evil, who can’t stomach the perversion, and is enraged to see God dishonored. Someone God can use to turn the tide of America.
If there is one question this blog asks it is this: Are you so filled with holy rage that you are willing to lay down your life to provide God with an opportunity to vindicate His name before this blasphemous generation?
Demons are holding ground in America not because of their power and strategy, but because of our weakness and ignorance.
Here is your great promise: When God sees someone take up the mighty weapons of God—in the Name of Jesus—and attempt the impossible—God will muster all the resources of heaven to bring you total victory.
Day after day, I have written the burden of the Lord. Often, the words have been directed at leaders. The messages have targeted shallowness, compromise and hypocrisy. They have accused leaders of gross negligence in the face of Satan’s assault on the church and the nation.
This time the message is for faithful warriors of God. Something is burning within my soul. Everything within me cries IT IS TIME FOR A NEW BREED OF CHRISTIAN WARRIOR.
Evil will soon feel their wrath and power.
Who are these people and what do they look like? The Bible says God knows those who are His. He knows who has remained true. He knows who has been rejected for refusing to conform to the counterfeits. God made them misfits to fit into a special order.
Jehovah has reserved hidden wisdom for them. Psalm 25:14 says, “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.” In this message I want to encourage you and fire you up for the secret work of Jesus in this hour.
A visit to the throne of God
You want to become a part of this new breed? You must begin with a visit to the throne of God. It is here…and only here, that you can be equipped for the amazing task ahead. Not only is this visit possible it is mandatory—it is scriptural.
Ephesians 2: 6 says “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”
What do you see from this vantage point? You see that Satan has as much chance against God as an amoeba has surviving on the surface of the sun. But what else do you see?
You see that all the vile railings of our culture are not—in any way—a threat to the purposes of the almighty. He knows the hollow arguments of the haters. He is not moved by the mental monopoly of fake news and leftist social media. He saw it all coming and prepared the response.
The Lord of the universe is not poor. He has pooled untold wealth to transfer it into the hands of trusted, proven, purified vessels whose only passion is to obey. Jesus saw the future and uttered an explosive prayer: PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND WORKERS INTO THE HARVEST.
Notice He did not say ministers, or celebrities. He said workers. Many want the titles, attention, and rewards…but they don’t want to do the work. A special core is rising that burns white hot with passion win lost souls and heal the sick. They are hidden now but soon they will shine like the sun.
Learning to ask for big and mighty things.
Those who are called to this new breed of spiritual warfare will ask and receive things that prior generations could not imagine. Simply put, we are talking about awesome things!
To become the askers, they need to be, they will be tested severely in order to come forth as gold. Their claims will not be elementary claims for personal pleasure but for massive changes in the culture. They will exploit demons, they will strip principalities of power and authority.
Learn the truth of the slingshot.
They will be hurt, wounded and brought to the brink of despair before their breakthrough. In their pain and agony, they will cry out why—why am I being pulled away from my promise? Why does each day take me further and further away from what you promised me?
God is deliberately building up the tension—the frustration—the fire to act…and at just the right moment, He will release you.
I don’t need to ask if you are a part of this new breed of warrior—nothing else explains you.

A growing number of Christians feel their church is doing a lot of things that don’t matter. Even successful programs don’t matter to them. They believe only a move of God can save us now.
They believe we have no time to play games. They are frustrated that church is catering to the lukewarm members. Most of all, they feel that they are being punished for wanting a move of God.
I want to direct myself toward leaders who are guilty of correcting members who yearn for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. You’ve got it totally backwards. Those who are hungry for a move of God are the best thing that ever happened to your church.
If you wounded a hungry saint’s heart, it was a spectacular mistake. They, and not the lukewarm, should be setting the tone for your church.
Somewhere, we got the idea—I believe it came from the pit of hell—that exuberant worship, preaching with unction and conviction, fiery prayer meetings, and deliberate soul winning are the “old ways.”
They are not old ways—they are timeless ways. In fact, they transcend time. They are the chosen weapons.
You never made Satan smile wider than when you punished someone in your congregation for wanting a move of God.
Where did you get the idea that a move of God was a bad thing? Let me guess…you heard it from a Bible College professor who can’t do it, therefore he teaches. Or you got from a church growth expert. You can’t fool me. I have read those manuals. Some even tell you to run the people out who desire an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
The best people in the church love this verse: 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” They refer to it often.
They yearn for the miracle that will stop America’s slide toward oblivion—they wish for an act of the Holy Spirit so real and widespread that it impacts, crime, injustice, addiction, and despair.
You may be punishing people God is stirring. You may be trying to put out a flame that God lit in their heart.
I think I know the biggest reason you may be punishing people who seek revival: You doubt it can happen. You doubt it is for today. Listen carefully to me: not only can God do it…the fact that your people are being stirred is a sign that God is trying to start revival fire.
Here’s what forever killed my doubts about revival. Matthew 12: 20 A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench, Till He sends forth justice to victory.”
Jesus will not snuff out the least flicker of revival. When anyone asks for revival from a pure heart, God says yes and begins the process. He takes you at your word. As I stood on the beach the gentle foam of the ocean lapped over my toes. The voice of the Lord said, “this gentle wave is the cousin of the tsunami.”
The smallest flame in the smallest church will not be quenched by Jesus. Given the proper opportunity, the Spirit of God will fan it into a raging fire of righteousness. The gentlest wave can grow into a tidal wave before anyone who simply hosts God’s presence, obeys His step by step orders, and refuses to abuse what God is doing among them.
The first step is to stop punishing those wonderful people who are hungry for the Holy Spirit to fall on your church.
Business as usual has proven to be a colossal failure. The massive mega churches in the Golden State—with their tens of millions of dollars—have not made a dent in the greatest moral meltdown in California’s history.
California is just 24 hours away from a law—California Assembly Bill 2943—that can forever change how Christians will be treated in this state. It could also, easily lead to banning Bibles.
Have you seen any organized protest? Do you hear many mega church pastor call for action on the final Sunday before the Senators vote? My guess is not much. I did get wind of a common theme: We don’t need to do anything because the gates of hell would not prevail against us.”
Such arrogance has taken its toll on believers. One lady—influenced by this thinking—said this on our Facebook page: “the Church is awake and powerful in California.” A brother responded, “Then why is California going to hell in a hand basket?”
Which begs a bigger question: why did the gates of hell prevail in so many places…even inside some churches? Look at these verses again to see why:
Matthew 16:18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Jesus said: “I will build.” There are two kinds of churches: The one He is building, and the one man is building. Can anyone deny California is overrun by man made religious empires?
Yes, they look right on the outside, and they are Christian, but they are disconnected from the life of Christ. Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.” -John 15: 5,6
Christ will build something through the preacher who abides in Him. But relying on a fad growth model cuts them off of from the life of God. Cut branches don’t dry up instantly—man made churches can thrive for a season on leadership skills and marketing talent. Human powered religious centers are sustainable until the right crisis arrives.
There is a devastating cost to these manufactured churches—and they anger God. He is angry that they have dulled the Body’s natural ability to sense danger. He is enraged that they kept his sheep from preparing for the moral landslide in California.
It grieves the Holy Spirit that they not only remained silent about wickedness, they actually opposed those who tried to obey God. Heaven is screaming at their guilt! Just when they needed to drive back demonic power, and catalyze moral awakening…they instead, tacitly approved of the wickedness.
The guilty know who they are. They knew it the first time they told a saint they couldn’t raise their hands in worship. They knew it when they began banning gifts of power, living by the clock, and leaving out Bible turths.
Now the Lord is signaling that a storm is coming. To set the record straight and to bring revival, God must expose their false foundations. This breaks my heart. It makes me weep.
Jesus warned about these storms: “But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”- Matthew 7: 26,27
Think of it as mercy if God brings your house down. At least your folly is revealed and you can repent before you stand before God.
If God turns you over and allows your charade to go on, that would be the worst. In this case, your empire becomes a trophy of hell. Millions of dollars are nothing to Satan to subsidize a factory of false faith and synthetic Christians. At that point, God will see no difference between you, Hollywood, Godless liberals, or even the porn industry. To Him you’re doing equal damage.
My prayer is that this gets to compromised preachers in time. I know some of them. They know what they are doing is not right…that’s why they suffer greatly. They harbor tremendous guilt, loneliness, and emptiness.
Frances Chan is an example of a man who would not compromise—he pastored a mega church in Simi Valley. Something profound gripped him. To the utter shock of almost everyone, he left all to begin a highly effective discipleship work in the Tenderloin area of San Francisco (an area I know well from ministering on those streets.) God filled his hunger for the life of Jesus to flow through him.
I am not saying every pastor has to leave their church. I am saying that worshiping size, prestige, and celebrity above the moving of the Holy Spirit has been total disaster for California. God has declared an end because there is too much at stake.
Now that Sacramento is out of the closet and is declaring war on His Church…God will not wait for you any longer. This could be a final warning. God is directing these scriptures to lukewarm leaders and lukewarm churches in California:
Revelations 3: 4 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,
‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Amen.
To fully grasp the phrase and the power it unleashes we must first admit that we have entered a season in American life that is the worst that Christians have ever known. There are forces crashing against our spirit that are unheard of by prior generations…
ONE PHRASE CAN CHANGE YOUR ENTIRE REACTION TO THE END TIMES
By Mario Murillo
To fully grasp the phrase and the power it unleashes we must first admit that we have entered a season in American life that is the worst that Christians have ever known. There are forces crashing against our spirit that are unheard of by prior generations.
There are things that are about to hit all Americans and it is a fact that hardly anyone is ready for these things. Here is but a short list of impending crisis:
The persecution of American believers will accelerate: The enemies of the faith have redefined classic moral values to make them look like hatred. Political Correctness has morphed into Enforced Correctness. The church is no longer allowed to disagree and Christians are told by a government and the media that they must comply or face criminal charges.
Extended age and pension pressure means the collapse of welfare: Most will not be able to stop working and spend their old age eking out an existence. This one is a double whammy to many who are retiring right now. Their savings, 401Ks, IRAs and pensions have shrunk while the number of years that they will need to finance has increased. Suddenly, long life feels like a curse!
Health care is going to get much, much worse. The quality is going to get miserable, doctors will refuse to work with insurance companies and costs for medicine and care will skyrocket. This could not be happening at a worse time! New diseases, viruses and emotional traumas will soon overtake society.
Political division guarantees that real solutions to America’s problems will not be found. Don’t look for common sense to come to Washington from either party. They are too divided to act in the best interest of the people.
Unless there is drastic action, we will see the worst decline of the church in our nation’s history. Vast amounts of America were given away by a generation that did not know its Bible or what God has done in our history.
However there is one phrase and one attitude that will not only save your life but give you power that you never imagined. There is one phrase that will make all of the difference in the world to your health physically and mentally. There is one declaration that will pave the way for you to conquer anything that the future holds.
So what is the phrase that if it came roaring out of our spirit would give us the upper hand over all of the insanity of this time? It begins with a very special kind of leverage. Read on:
Archimedes, genius of antiquity discovered the laws of the lever. He once wrote to King Hiero of Syracuse, whose kinsman and friend he was, that this force could be used to move any weight. He said, “Give me a place to stand and I will move the earth!”
King Hiero, who was absolutely astonished by the statement, asked him to prove it. In the harbor was a ship that had proved impossible to launch even by the combined efforts of all the men of Syracuse. Archimedes, who had been examining the properties of levers and pulleys, built a machine that allowed him to single-handedly move the ship from a distance away.
Thousands of years later man still conquers immovable objects with the science of levers and pulleys.
Now apply that principle to the work of the Holy Spirit. He whom Jesus sent has come along side us to apply simple but irresistible force on all of our trials and tribulations. It begins with this phrase that hit me like a lightning bolt:
THE END TIMES ARE NOT HAPPENING TO ME. I AM HAPPENING TO THE END TIMES.
Is this an arrogant boast or worse a delusional boast? Absolutely not. Archimedes could never have imagined the pulleys and levers of divine destiny! He took a stand and you must take a stand. You must take your position in the heavenlies.
You are declaring that you are happening to the end times when you do these things:
1. Become catalytic. A catalyst is any substance that causes or speeds up a chemical reaction without itself being changed or consumed. The hellish events of today cannot change you or consume you.
Now take a look at God. He gives special grace for these last days. Grace is not just favor. It is not just forgiveness. It is the combined power of the resurrection and the righteousness of Jesus Himself.
We hear Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” We hear that verse quoted quite often but we may be failing to see the real good news in that promise and its direct bearing on what you are going through right now.
Because you know God you are protected from the corruption of this time. Because you know God you will be stronger than these times. Because you know God you will not merely survive these times, you will exploit them.
2. Declare God’s power over your physical health. He will restore your energy, He will oversee your immune system. He will guard your heart so that your resistance to disease will be awesome. Obamacare cannot begin to match the benefits of what Christ offers you now.
Psalm103:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Isaiah 40: 31 But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
James 5:14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
You do not have to dread long lines at an emergency room when you claim Christ as your doctor and the guardian of your health!
3. Supernatural emotions will remove your fear of bad news, headlines and threats.
It is time for the people who quote, “Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world, to also confess “greater is He who is in me than what is happening in the world.”
Psalm 112:7-8 “He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”
God wants to give us supernatural emotions. Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
God wants you to walk in the knowledge of His supernatural protection. John 17:15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
The Lord God Almighty wants to be your supernatural provider and protector.
The NSA has been spying on Americans. This has many believers up in arms. Consider this: Satan already knew everything about you: Social Security Number, cell phone, driver’s license, and bank account numbers and your home address and because of Jesus’ prayer the devil is helpless to use it against you. You are protected!
You are here for a big reason. You are not the victim you are the victor. Here is a before and after snapshot for you in these two final verses:
Judges 6:13 “Gideon said to Him, “O my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? This a man before his transformation and life is happening to him.
Romans 8: 31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” This is Paul asking the church a question about reacting to life when you know that God is for you.
So now I am asking you the question: What shall we say to these terrible, evil, stressful things? We shall say: THE END TIMES ARE NOT HAPPENING TO ME. I AM HAPPENING TO THE END TIMES!
